Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love,
that we may sing for joy
and be glad all our days.

The morning is my favorite time of day.
I ordinarily arise before dawn to put the kettle on
putting some dishes away in the cupboard
or folding an errant napkin while I wait for the trill signal of it's whistle.
Fragrant steam rises from the teapot as I pour
and I like the way the water sounds
Everything else quiet in the pre-dawn twilight.
Yesterday I bought a new mug because the handle of my old one broke.
The design reminds me of the waves on the sea outside my window.
